Google makes the NSA look like amateurs. I know that Google knows everything there is to know about me, but, by heavens, I'm not going to help them.
now that their company is Alphabet, it struck me as a type of admission of who they really are.
LOL, just look at their website: https://abc.xyz/ Just another alphabet agency I mean company...

Mainly FireFox, because it's what I've become used to, looked at PaleMoon, could be an alternative for me, & occasionally, I'll use Dillo if I want quick access to mainly text sites.

I'd love to use a text browser, but just can't get on with them, they just don't work how i do.

Since Firefox 57 was released, I'm using that again. I have Chromium for if a site just hates Firefox, but now that Firefox is usable again, I've uninstalled Chrome from all my machines.

I'm so pleased that Firefox seemed to return to resource sanity with v.57 but I am at least equally angry I now have to recompile to --enable-alsa. Seriously... wtf Firefox? Is there some problem disabling it fixes?

I tested FF 52 ESR on Slack yesterday and it drove my CPU crazy at nearly 100% utilisation even when idle. Qupzilla and Chromium were much better.

Depends on my machine. I mostly use chrome or firefox on my personal machines.
Sadly on my office laptop I have to use Internet explores coz some of my company websites only open in that.

Try firefox 58, it's much less CPU hungry
I updated Slackware package using this script

Opera for the most part, but sometimes I use firefox or chrome. Depends on what I'm doing, whether that be web design or working with flash.

I am divided between Chrome/Chromium and Firefox. All I wanted is the seamless sync of bookmarks, etc., and I prefer FF for desktop (on my Windows, Debian, and Arch machines). However, FF's mobile versions (on IOS and Android) really sucks (torn pages, slower loading of pages compared to Chrome, and occasional hangs). So I usually switch between the 2.
